History:
The reign of Joseph Napoleon was the opportunity for Hispanic America to shake up the Spanish yoke and to revolt. The Mexican revolution started in 1810 and lasted until the proclamation of the Republic in 1823. With the Treaty of Guadeloupe, 2 May 1848, Mexico conceded Texas and California to the United States, which was nearly half of its territory. About thirty years later, General Porfirio Diaz, who campaigned on the liberal side against the French intervention in Mexico, came to power in 1876 and held it until 1911. During these 35 years of dictatorship, the country opened its doors to foreign capital, economy was modernised but social inequality got increasingly greater.

  • A very small coin shipped in a very LARGE box ;-) Otherwise, coin is exactly as pictured, delivered cross-Atlantic very quickly, and this was a perfect transaction. Excellent seller. Thank you.

    Verkäufer reagierte nicht auf Käufernachrichten. Catawiki musste 2 x an Versand erinnern. Fristen wurden nicht eingehalten. Insgesamt mühsame Abwicklung. Münze selbst war o.k..

  • Coin took a while to arrive; little concerned by lack of communication from seller. However, quality of the coin is excellent (better than the description) & far outweighs the delay. Would recommend.
